I weaned Mia almost 3 weeks ago. I am a little sad, but the freedom is nice, and now I can put her to sleep without the boob! Just wanted to share. So how long after weaning till I can expect my boobs to shrink? They haven't shrunk yet and I am thinking they might not at this point.

I only breastfed for about 2 months (most of it was actually pumping) and mine never really did shrink that much. It pretty much just went from my bra being a bit tight to fitting properly.

I breastfed for 15 months and am super proud as the beginning of breastfeeding was very difficult for me. I had to work very hard to increase and maintain supply. I weaned Mia extremely gradually over the course of 3 months. I cut out a feeding every few weeks. It was easy until the very last part of no breastfeeding before bed. I could not put her to sleep for 3 weeks until she realized there was a new procedure. She still points at my boobs, and says boob and does the sign for milk. I wonder how long it will be before she forgets about it!

Bless her! I often wonder if Kirsty remembers I BF her. It's been 4months since I weaned now, but she loves my boobies!
